I love this. I've been using it for ten years. I have a routine of using sea breeze after I shower to check if there is any excess dirt after I wash. when I use this face wash it gets all the excess dirt out of my pores I unlike others.

LOVE THIS PRODUCT! My face gets dull and lifeless when I'm stressed from school but when I use this product, my face brightens up and I feel soo refreshed. It sometimes is too rough on my sensitive skin but I love the smell and the effect!

I use this scrub nearly everyday. While I feel I does an excellent job of exfoliating my skin, I don't feel it does a good job controlling my breakouts. Still on a search for the perfect acne treatment.

I have very sensitive skin that is prone to eczema, combination skin that gets really dry in some places and really oily with breakouts in other places. This scrub works well to exfoliate and get rid of the oil without irritating my skin.

I had high hopes for this product. After using it for 2 weeks I noticed my face was very dry and started peeling. I stopped using the product. I wish it would have worked for me.

This stuff is really good and gets down deep in the skin but you have to be careful because sometimes it can be a little too rough on your skin and cause cuts, depending on how many times you use a week.

This product is not my favorite face wash. I have extremely sensitive skin so it made me break out a little bit. It smells really good though and it felt great going on my skin!

Although I use this product for my face a couple a times during the week, I also use it to exfoliate and scrub off the dead skin after I shave my legs. If you have tanner skin, or overall suffer from "strawberry legs" definitely give this product a try, you will see a difference.
